Raspberry Pi

I'm kind of new to Linux, or my Pi uinit. I want to install a BinkD mailer on
it... Does anyone have the instructions as to how to do this kicking around
somewhere??
Thanx

Do you run BinkD in Linux or Pi?? IB Joe AKA Joe Schweier SysOp of Joe's Computer & BBS Since 1991 joesbbs.com

Okay, thanx... I have done in part what you said... I think I need to call a friend.... I fly by the seat of my pants on this and did not fully grasp what is needed of me.
At least I know it is done, easy for those with an understanding...

This is how I do it.
Run the following commands on your Pi (in Terminal if you use GUI or just in the remote SSH console): sudo apt install git build-essential
You can add libncurses5-dev to it if you would like to compile GoldEd+ later on.
Make sure you're in the home dir of yours: cd ~/ Clone binkd sources from repo: git clone

CD into the newly downloaded dir with the sources: cd binkd
Read the UNIX Compiling section of the readme here:
formatting link

Basically all it says is that you have to run this commands from the dir you have cloned from git earlier:
cp mkfls/unix/* . sh configure make all
Make all might take some time to finish running. After it is done, you may run: sudo make install Which will place a compiled binkd binary into /usr/local/sbin
Thats pretty much it. At the binkd git page you should find a sample config to start with.

That was helpful.... Good job!!! IB Joe AKA Joe Schweier SysOp of Joe's Computer & BBS Since 1991 joesbbs.com

If you want an easy route, I have both MBSE and GOLDEDPLUS as a debian package.
I use both under docker on a Pi. You'll find some details the docker side on my site:

Yell out if you would like the debs.

It is in the std repository so from the comand line try sudo apt-get install binkd

I just checked the Time and date on all 3 ststems, and they are all the same time, currently Sept 17, 2018 @ 5:04 PM

My guess is the Fidonet side of things doesn't have timezones (at all, or set correctly), and the Fido-Usenet gateway is in New Zealand, so all Joe's postings are coming out with UTC+12 timezones. If he's in fact in UTC-5 that would cause his postings to be timestamped 17 hours early.
His quoting is using BBS standards, which is what happens what postings are made on a BBS and gatewayed to Usenet.

But you're sending this out marked with time zone +1200, rather than the +0600 which would match your actual time zone.
(Unix gets this right almost without effort on the part of the admin, thanks to the Olson database. Everything else, including programs running on Unix which don't use the system libraries, struggles.)

If I may step in here:
Ians post and your reply look reasonable in your respective local times with two hours between them but your time zones are strange. My system in Europe flags his as 11 pm but yours as 7 am, making your answer come 16 hours before his post. It seems that it's your time zone that's off.

My guess is he is posting from UTC+12-25years. Who the hell uses a BBS to Usenet gateway after the early 1990s?

Hi Roger et al.
Joe is using a fidonet technology network gateway that is based in New Zealand that I run. His BBS message packets come in via Fidonet style connections with the following kludge lines added. One of which you will see flys the correct TZUTC time code for when he posted things at his end.
Here's the message as I see it on my BBS system at Agency BBS in New Zealand.

I do. But then I also run a NNTP server as well.... and who starts one of those up for fun these days I hear you ask? I do. Despite rumors to the contrary the BBS scene is not dead. In fact it's on a bit of a resurgence right now. Readers may like to check out mysticbbs.com as a source of software if interested.

Hopefully we may connect in that scene sometime soon? Contact me at bbs.nz if you need any help. Cheers.

Apologies some of my reply did not make it through... here's the rest of it.
[snip]
The gateway software however places a +1200 timezone stamp on the Usenet gated packet because that's where the system resides here in New Zealand. I am not aware of any way to allow his original time zone data to pass unchanged. So that's why you are seeing that.
The gateway has been running for a number of years and the only real issue we've had is that some BBS systems with another gated access to a Usenet group like this have also linked to the gateway I run thereby creating a loop of messages running from Usenet gateway BBS the gateway I run Usenet.
That happened recently in this Usenet newsgroup and I took steps to remove the offending node. This newsgroup is also gated to a mailing list which is where I became aware of some reports about that issue and acted promptly to resolve.
So that aside, the issue of TZ problems causing folks grief in the way they can thread their posts in their favorite news reader is new to me. I accept it's not ideal for some but I'm sorry that can't be helped due to the nature of the older gateway software being used.
As another poster in this thread has already commented there is a work around and that's to simply thread based on reference headers.
I hope this post helps to clarify what's happening.
Best, Paul

Yes, I'm afraid that's quite clear.
